ZC Digital Tilt Sensor Used for SIEMENS X-ray Machine RAD3 System

With the improvement of people’s living standards, people pay more and more attention to medical care, and the requirements for medical equipment are also increasing. X-ray machines are one of them. The X-ray machine is an X-ray generating device, which is mainly composed of an X-ray tube, an X-ray machine power supply and a control circuit, while the X-ray tube is composed of a cathode filament (Cathod), an anode target (Anode) and a vacuum glass tube. The X-ray machine power supply can be divided into two parts: a high-voltage power supply and a filament power supply. The filament power supply is used for heating the filament. The high-voltage output end of the high-voltage power supply is respectively sandwiched between the cathode filament and the anode target to provide a high-voltage electric field to make the filament active. The electrons accelerate to the anode target to form a high-speed electron stream. After bombarding the anode target surface, 99% is converted to heat, and 1% is X-ray due to bremsstrahlung radiation.

It allows humans to view the inside of the human body without incision, providing a very effective reference for doctors. The old X-ray machine needs the patient to lie on the bed during work. It needs to adjust the posture when checking, but it is inconvenient for some patients, then the doctor is required to adjust the angle of the X-ray machine.

Now in the latest SIEMENS X-ray machines, ZC’s tilt sensor (model ZCT-1360J-LBS-ABUS-77) is applied to the X-ray machines for automatic adjustment of X-ray machines. The tilt sensor is used in two parts, one is to measure the angle of the putter, further calculate the height of the medical bed, and the other is to measure the angle of rotation of the viewing screen. It is the first time to use the tilt sensor to complete the angle measurement of X-ray machines in the world.

The successful bid for this project is another successful application of ZC tilt sensors after becoming the sole exclusive supplier of CT system T3 new platform. With leading technical capabilities, excellent product quality, and long-term stable performance, ZC continues to gain the trust and recognition of customers, providing customizable, optimal tilt sensor solutions according to customer requirements.
